A Child's Library...

Today we started work on crafting some custom built-ins for a child's bedroom. The cases will wrap around the room and have to match existing cases and mouldings in the home. These particular cases will be painted in to match existing bookcases so they are being built from quality poplar and birch. Below Ava is helping Tom with some assembly.
